Highlights IPL 2017, MI vs DD in Mumbai, cricket scores and updates: Mumbai Indians win by 14 runs

  • That's it from us on our coverage of the 25th match of the ongoing tournament, with the Mumbai Indians pulling off yet another victory despite posting a total as low as 142, keeping their fortess intact as a result! 

    Do tune in tomorrow for the second double-header! While Gujarat Lions take on Kings XI Punjab in the first match, the action shifts to the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, where the Knight Riders take on the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

    For now, we bid you good night! 

  • Mitchell McClenaghan is the Man of the Match for his outstanding figures of 3/24 from four overs. 

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    Another fine win for Mumbai. They are on a roll now. Didn't get a big score, in fact it was under par. But the way they defended the paltry total speaks volumes of their character. This is their sixth win on the trot now and are looking invincible. A great fight by the South African duo of Morris and Rabada, but the bowlers did the job for MI in the end. And the Wankhede continues to be MI's fortress.

  • After 20 overs,Delhi Daredevils 128/7 ( Chris Morris 52 , Pat Cummins 4)

    Right then. Hardik Pandya to bowl the final over. Leg bye in the first ball, after the ball deflects off Cummins' shoulder towards short third man. Wide in the second ball, with Hardik clearly under pressure! FOUR! Full and wide again, and Morris slices this over backward point! Superb save by Krunal at deep point, though Morris gets to his half-century with a double. Just a single is all that Morris can get in the fourth delivery — a superb one by Hardik, pitching it up and sending it to wide mid-off. Dot off the fifth ball! Just one run off the last ball, and Mumbai successfully defend a total as low as 142! 


    Mumbai Indians defeat Delhi Daredevils by 14 runs!

    Chris Morris becomes the second player to score a fifty batting at No 8 in IPL after Harbhajan Singh. 

  • FIFTY for Chris Morris! And he gets there with a double in the third ball of the final over! 

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    Bumrah gets rid of Rabada then with a peach of a delivery. A brilliant partnership ends. Well fought! The scales tilt more in Mumbai's favour.

  • After 19 overs,Delhi Daredevils 118/7 ( Chris Morris 45 , Pat Cummins 3)

    Bumrah to bowl the crucial 19th over. Morris enjoys some luck in the second ball of the over, chipping it over to vacant mid-off region. What a delivery by Bumrah in the third ball, bowling a slower one that misses both Rabada's bat as well as the off-stump. Bumrah doesn't miss the leg-stump in the next ball, bowling another slower one that Rabada once again misses. New man Cummins walks out to bat, and gets a couple off the first ball, and he gets a single off the last ball to retain strike for the final over. 


    Delhi need 25 off 6 balls. 

  • BOWLED EM! Bumrah it is who gets the crucial wicket of Rabada, and breaks the 91-run stand! Second-consecutive slower ball, and this time the ball hits the base of Rabada's leg stump! DD 115/7

    Kagiso Rabada b Bumrah 44(39)

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    Jasprit Bumrah has been brought into the attack as we approach the closing stage of this enthralling tie. Wankhede is loving every bit of it. Harbhajan is having a good time with the fans near the fence. 

  • After 18 overs,Delhi Daredevils 113/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 43 , Chris Morris 44)

    McClenaghan into his final over. FOUR! Top-edge off Morris' bat, with McClenaghan pitching it short this time, runs away to the vacant third-man boundary. Big shout for a caught behind in the penultimate ball, and it is turned down by the umpire, with the wicketkeeper himself not showing too much interest. SIX! Morris keeps Delhi in the hunt with a majestic strike towards wide long-on, smashing a short ball outside off! 


    Delhi need 30 from 12 balls! 

  • After 17 overs,Delhi Daredevils 101/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 42 , Chris Morris 33)

    Bumrah back into the attack, and starts off with a yorker outside off. The duo bring up the team 100 in this over by exchanging singles. Good, tight over by Bumrah, with just four coming off it! Fantastic variations by the Indian pacer, mixing his yorkers with a couple of full deliveries. 


    Delhi need 42 from 18 balls. 

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    A fine effort at the boundary by Pollard, but his foot had touched the ropes. Four given. Pollard looks incredulous. Meanwhile a few 'Delhi, Delhi' chants attract a few glares from the Mumbai crowd. This is going to be another last over finish, one feels. 

  • After 16 overs,Delhi Daredevils 97/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 40 , Chris Morris 31)

    McClenaghan returns in the 16th over of the innings, and Morris nearly gets run-out at the non-striker's end while setting off for a quick single. Morris faces a bouncer from McClenaghan, and top-edges it to the vacant short square-leg region. Six off the over, with McClenaghan keeping it tight in his third over. 


    Delhi need 46 off 24 balls. 

  • After 15 overs,Delhi Daredevils 91/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 38 , Chris Morris 28)

    Krunal Pandya introduced into the attack in the 15th over. Powerfully swept away by Morris in the second ball of the over, though it is only a single. He hammers the fourth ball powerfully towards the extra-cover boundary, where Pollard pulls off an athletic stop but fails to prevent the boundary with his foot touching the rope. Eight off the over. 


    Delhi need 52 to win from 30 balls. 

  • After 14 overs,Delhi Daredevils 83/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 36 , Chris Morris 22)

    Harbhajan Singh into his final over. Morris and Rabada rotate the strike between themselves in this over, patting the ball to all parts of the ground. Five off this over, with the two Delhi batsmen fairly settled at the centre right now. 


    Delhi need 60 off the last 36 balls. 

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    And that four brings up a fifty-run partnership between Rabada and Morris. Both the all-rounders showed great composure and have managed to put up a brilliant fight. Will the match go down the wire?

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    'Chal Kagiso!' shout some of the Delhi fans in the crowd. 'Bhajji, Bhajji,' retort the Mumbai supporters as the wily off spinner has Rabada in a spot of bother. This is Mumbai's game to lose now. 

  • After 13 overs,Delhi Daredevils 78/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 33 , Chris Morris 20)

    Johnson returns to the attack in the 13th over, with Mumbai now looking to break the stand. Morris tries smashing the second ball down the ground, though Rabada comes in the way, and cops a blow. FOUR! Morris brings up the 50-stand in the next delivery with a powerful cut! Nine off the over, with hope starting to return to the Delhi dugout. And the batting side opts for the timeout now. 


    Delhi need 65 to win from 42 balls.

  • After 12 overs,Delhi Daredevils 69/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 32 , Chris Morris 13)

    Harbhajan Singh into his third over. Appeal for lbw in the third ball of the over, though Ravi turns it down in yet another fine decision by umpire S Ravi, as the ball appeared to be missing leg. Appeal for stumping by keeper Parthiv next ball, though the umpire doesn't go upstairs. Good over, with just two coming off it. 


    Delhi ened 74 to win from 48 balls.

Nearly chops the next ball onto his stumps, with the ball running away to the fine-leg boundary. 10 off the over, with 33 coming off the last 3. The partnership between the two South Africans is worth 43 at the moment. 


    Delhi need 76 to win from 54 balls. 

  • After 10 overs,Delhi Daredevils 57/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 22 , Chris Morris 11)

    Harbhajan into the attack in the first over after the timeout. FOUR! Reverse-swept away by Morris, hammering it away towards backward square-leg. SIX! Now Rabada comes down the ground and brings up the team 50 with a slog down the ground! Good over for Delhi, with 13 coming off it!

    Hardik into his second over. Rabada hammers the third ball of the over down the ground, with Krunal saving a couple of runs by running down the ground. FOUR! Smoked down the ground by KG! And it was hit with a straight bat! Both him, as well as Morris, are capable of a few lusty blows, and are Delhi's last hope at the moment. Meanwhile, Morris is starting to struggle at the moment, and it looks like he is having hamstring problems right now. The umpire signals the timeout at the end of the over. 


    Delhi need 99 to win from 66 balls. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance cricket journalist

    24/6... that's a point of no return in T20 cricket. Shocking ineptitude from DD batting lineup. 

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    A huge cheer for Hardik Pandya as he walked to his position near the straight boundary and Hardik acknowledges the cheer, making a bowing down gesture to the Wankhede crowd.

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    Another one bites the dust and Hardik Pandya celebrates like Imran Tahir. Karun Nair departs as Delhi are 24/6 in the seventh over. 

  • After 8 overs,Delhi Daredevils 34/6 ( Kagiso Rabada 8 , Chris Morris 3)

    Harbhajan into the attack, and for a change, the Daredevils don't lose a wicket in an over. Rabada ends the over with a boundary, getting a thick edge that carries over the slip. 


    Delhi need 109 to win from 72 balls.

    Hardik Pandya into the attack in the first over after powerplay, and walks away after giving away just five runs, and grabbing the wicket of Nair, who chops a back-of-length ball onto his off-stump! Chris Morris joins fellow South African Rabada at the centre right now. 


    Delhi need 115 to win from 78 balls. 

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    What a night this has been for the home side. Quick stat: Last 17 balls, 3 runs, 3 wickets. 

  • Debdutta Bhattacharjee

    'Ek wicket aur le bhai,' urges a Mumbai fan. 'Delhi aaj 60 mein all out,' predicts another. Mumbai have the Daredevils by the scruff of the neck now. And with Rishabh Pant departing now, it looks terribly grim for Delhi. MI proving again that the Wankhede is their fortress. 

  • OUT! Now Karun Nair chops a rising delivery outside off onto his off-stump! And now Hardik Pandya strikes in his very first over! This innings is turning out to be a joke right now! DD 24/6

    Karun Nair b Hardik 5(15)

  • After 6 overs,Delhi Daredevils 23/5 ( Karun Nair 5 , Kagiso Rabada 1)

    Bumrah into the attack in the final over of powerplay, and gets Pant out in the third ball of the over with a rising delivery outside off that he meekly guides to Harbhajan in the slips. The Mumbai pacer later greets Rabada with a vicious bouncer that pings him on the helmet. Just two off the over, and Delhi are off to a forgettable start in their powerplay. 

    Delhi need 120 to win from 84 balls.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    21 is the lowest score at which Delhi Daredevils have lost their first five wickets in an IPL match. The previous lowest was 43 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata in 2008.

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    'Jeetega bhai jeetega Mumbai jeetega' shouts the Wankhede crowd as another one goes down. Delhi in deep, deep trouble! 

  • OUT! Now the hard-hitting youngster Pant makes his way back to the dugout, edging the Bumrah delivery to Harbhajan in the slips. DD are reeling at 21/5

    Delhi Daredevils losing first four wickets under 25 runs in IPL:

    4/7 v Mumbai Indians,Wankhede,2011
    4/21 v Mumbai Indians,Wankhede,2017*
    4/24 v Chennai Super Kings,Chepauk,2012

  • After 5 overs,Delhi Daredevils 21/4 ( Karun Nair 5 , Rishabh Pant (W) 0)

    Johnson bowls from the other end, and maintains the vice-like grip on the two new batsmen at the crease, getting the first maiden of the innings. Delhi struggling at the moment, and need a partnership like that of Pollard-Krunal in their successful chase against RCB. 


    Delhi need 122 to win from 90 balls. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance cricket journalist

    Brilliant spell from McClenaghan.... DD's nightmares come true in a 140-odd chase. 

  • Shivam Damohe, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede

    Unbelievable scenes at the Wankhede as Shreyas Iyer departs nicking a short one down the leg side. McClenaghan gets his first wicket. 

  • After 4 overs,Delhi Daredevils 21/4 ( Karun Nair 5 , )

    McClenaghan into his second over. Iyer is dismissed in the third ball of the over as Delhi sink further, losing their third wicket with 20 on board! Strikes again in the last ball of the over, this time trapping Anderson lbw in what apppeared to be a dubious lbw decision. Two wickets inside an over, and he has tore the Delhi top-order apart with three wickets! 

  • OUT! Second wicket for McClenaghan in this over, and he traps Anderson lbw! Looked as if it was missing the stumps, though hawk-eye shows the ball to be crashing between middle and leg. DD 21/4

    Corey Anderson lbw McClenaghan 0(3)

Preview: In-form Mumbai Indians will look to exploit their home conditions when they take on Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.

Sitting at the top with five wins in six matches, Mumbai will look for their sixth consecutive win in the ongoing edition as the home side seems superior to the visiting side on current form and paper.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai had a nagging concern about the non-performance of their top-order -- but it also clicked in the last match against Punjab.

Mumbai's middle-order batsmen, especially Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, have been in prime form.

The bowling department seemed balanced as Mumbai have a bunch of experienced bowlers in their line-up.

Veteran pacer Harbhajan Singh has been fantastic in the first six overs, while Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah have been consistent in the death overs. Mitchell McClenaghan has also provided the breakthroughs at the crucial moments.

On the other hand, Delhi, who are currently at the fourth spot with two wins and three losses, lost their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) despite a good performance.

Packed with young batsmen like Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi's strength lies in their array of talented seam-bowling all-rounders.

Bowlers like Chris Morris, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews and Pat Cummins provide the depth and balance to the side. But the exciting team sometimes faces an absence of a pivot around which the team will bat.

So, in the clash, Delhi will be eyeing a win this time to regain their winning momentum.
